The Illinois Pneumatics' Diaphragm Air Cylinder combines the field proven rolling diaphragm design with today's higher strength, lighter weight materials to provide a cylinder that lasts longer, yet weighs less than conventional diaphragm air cylinders. Illinois Pneumatics prides itself in modifying standard cylinders for special use.
CYLINDER TUBE-Manufactured from 6063-T6 aluminum, which is completely anodized to assure maximum corrosion protection. Custom anodizing colors are available as well as other exterior finishes.*
END CAPS-High grade aluminum alloy end caps offer standard mounting hole configurations or custom patterns.*
*size 36 cylinders
use chrome plated and ground steel tubes with
PISTON RODS-Piston rods are made of hard chrome plated ground and polished steel with a minimum yield of 100,000 psi. Ground and chrome plated stainless steel piston rods are also available.
PISTON-Pistons are aluminum alloy for light weight and low inertia.
BEARINGS-Standard single (SA series) and double acting
(DA series) cylinders utilize impregnated sintered bronze bearings
with a urethane rod wiper for smooth operation and long life. LB series
cylinders utilize linear bearings for applications requiring minimum friction
and maximum sensitivity. These cylinders combine the advantages of the
rolling diaphragm seal with the extremely low friction linear bearing
and a case hardened steel piston rod. Linear bearing cylinders are available
in long stroke only. CB series cylinders utilize composite bearings
and case hardened steel rods for applications requiring the highest load
capacity. With load capacities ten to twenty times greater than other
bearings and a co-efficient of friction as low as .125 average, composite
bearings are the ultimate in performance. Unlike other bearing designs,
composite bearings will not fail catastrophically.
DIAPHRAGMS-Illinois Pneumatics' fabric reinforced diaphragms are manufactured from neoprene rubber with a woven polyester fabric. Rated to operate from -25 degrees to 250 degrees F. Optional diaphragm materials such as viton or silicone can be selected to operate from -75 degrees to 400 degrees F. Consult factory for application requirements.
FASTENERS-Manufactured from heat treated, high carbon alloys for strength and resistance to corrosion. Other materials such as stainless steel are also available.
ILLINOIS PNEUMATICS DIAPHRAGM AIR CYLINDERS ARE RATED TO OPERATE ON COMPRESSED AIR UP TO 145 PSI WITH TEMPERATURES FROM -25 TO 250 DEGREES F.
